Physical Therapy Services

 

 

 

When you use Advanced Canine Rehabilitation Center, we’ll help you choose from a selection of physical therapy services. These may help ease your dog’s pain, speed its recovery or build its strength and function. We’ll teach you to care for your dog when it returns home, or design a personal plan to continue rehabilitation at home.

Short or Long-term Boarding and Care Available

Whether your dog has just undergone surgery or suffered an injury that requires more time and rehabilitation than you are able to provide, we offer a specialized boarding and rehabilitation program. We are able to provide the essential care required during their initial recovery, and provide therapy services throughout the day.

Performance/Sporting Evaluations & Rehab

Sporting athletes that participate in activities such as agility and flyball, undergo extreme stresses on their muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons. This makes them much more susceptible to injury. We provide these athletes with individualized treatment and exercise programs required to maximize and maintain a high level of performance. We treat many canine athletes that compete on a local and national level, as well as those that participate on the World Agility Team for the United States. We provide the same level of care for these athletes as we do for your pet. 

We begin with an evaluation to learn about your pet and the sports they perform with you. We will then work with you to create a customized exercise plan to help keep your dog in shape so they can continue competing while maintaining their health.

Underwater Treadmill

A newer addition to the center, the underwater treadmill leverages the benefits of warm water while offering a low-impact, high-resistance therapy solution for dogs to stay fit or to help in rehabilitation of injuries and decreasing compensations. Incorporating canine hydrotherapy can help lessen recovery time by providing resistance throughout the range of motion.

Conditions that can benefit from the underwater treadmill include: Dysplasia, pre or post-surgery, arthritis, neurologic dysfunction, ligament sprains, strains or tears and general weakness. 

This is Buttercup, a paralyzed patient who we are working to rehabilitate and walk again. The underwater treadmill is a big part of her rehab plan. With lots of hard work she is 4 wks post-surgery & is walking again!

Brace Fitting

Custom bracing allows your dog to get the best fit and most comfortable brace to help them stay fit and comfortable before, after, or  instead of surgery. We have experience in custom brace fitting to help you get the best fit for your dog. We will start by assessing your dog to find the best product and then take measurements to help you get a correct fit in your custom product!

Conditions that can benefit from bracing include: ACL tears, achilles ruptures, Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), neurological issues, and carpal hyperextension.
